Trevor Gillmeister and Gary Larson produced many courageous displays for the Maroons against formidable NSW teams.

The former Queensland teammates never took a backward step – and that same mindset applied today when the duo tackled a 53km walk from Gladstone to Bororen.

Heavy rain posed some issues, but the pair successfully conquered the journey this afternoon.

Trevor, Sandra and the team have now walked more than 950km as they spread the word about Asbestos Awareness.

Their next major stop en route to Brisbane is the city of Bundaberg.

With more than 500km still in front of them, Gilly is looking after his body like a modern-day professional footballer! He cooled off in a wheelie bin bath filled with ice thanks to JJ Richards and Be Cool this afteroon.

“Thanks to the generous support of the public and our kind sponsors, so far we have managed to raise over $55,000 and are on track to achieve our target of $100,000 by the end of the trip,” Gillmiester said.

“The generosity and kindness of the people of Queensland as the team has made their way down the state has been amazing and made this very challenging trek, much more enjoyable and endurable.

“We have released the first of the 2014 signed Qld State of Origin jerseys on eBay with more to come over the following weeks. The final jerseys and memorabilia will be released to coincide with the conclusion of the journey at Norths Leagues Club at Bishop Park on October 27 to which you are invited to attend.
